Kala Ghoda festival 2009

The Karuppu kudirai is back and yes, had this alpa thrill of being one of the first to attack the shops and fill my bag with everything and anything from the Kala Ghoda bazaar.

This installation by a group of architecture students from Prabhadevi caught my eye. This is not part of their project / syllabus / curricullum . These guys decided to get together, buy used cycles from the scrap dealer , chorbazaar etc. and put them together.









If there's an award for the best stall in Kala Ghoda , it should go to Harshad Patankar . This young mechanical engineer's handmade watches and clocks are a must buy. Me no cash - he no accept card. I WANT THESE CLOCKS, DEAR PURUSAN!



The Hastakari stall - One bag and two kurtas added to my shopping cart and the quilt, to the wish list.
A regular at almost all craft bazaars in Mumbai - Nirmala from Kottans (pic). "Namma oorkaaraala naamadan encourage pannanum" - M-i-l's golden words and yours truly added two small pouches to the shopping cart.

For Hamsi, Teesu, Arj, Sharan and I....



Plus Brass ganapatis, Concern India's pen holders, pouches plus bags plus Orissa handicrafts plus...

The Shopping will todarum tomorrow....this time with one number man's big fat wallet which will (hopefully) have more money than the chillarai I had carried today.

lovely post. Wish you could cover it in a little more detail for the unfortunate like us who are unable to be a part of such an exciting fest.
